Yes. It is in my return pile.

So I don't know if y'all know this, but Brooks Brothers changed their Unconditional Guarantee.

Bad move, imo.

Don't think it's that big of a deal tbh. They will still take all legitimate returns.

They are just trying to cut down on losses, fraud etc. Bottom line they are still a business and need profit. Having worked retail during my college years, people can be quite disgusting.

No argument there. But if stores like LL Bean can still do it, I don't see why BB can't though.

Fitz Harris Tweed is nice...would have been perfect if not for a single vent, although BB site describes as double vents.

It's also just dark enough and with enough blue that I think you may be able to get away with either mid-grey or charcoal pants without matching—sort of in between. I think the odd model does it a disservice, although I may let it out an inch through the waist. Also got some white/blue/ecru OCBDs because you're going to need to keep everything else quite simple.

I thought I wanted the herringbone till I saw that thing in store and decided I liked it better. Pairs nicely with jeans, chinos, or wool pants.

Can some please explain the difference between this calfskin belt:

and this calfskin belt?

Lapels seem really narrow though.

They are pretty narrow. I don't mind, but I have it in the smallest size. I don't know how it would look in a 44—whether it would scale up.

Personally, I think it's stupid to just take stuff back unless it was really defective. It's a big waste of time and money when companies take stuff back because some dopey kid decides he doesn't like something or thinks it doesn't fit when he has no clue how things should fit and didn't listen to the experiencced salesman's advice. Or you get boys who have no idea what size shoe they wear and play musial shoes back and forth with exchanges that disrupts stocks and increases the price of the goods for the normal shopper. Places like BB lose money with these exchange freaks. Every time someone returns something it involves paperwork, inspecting the item for damage where it can't be resold (usually damage done by the buyer)  back into stock at the warehouse  etc etc And on top of that most of these returns are by SF geeks who bought the stuff on sale and the co. just broke even or lost money on  the deal and now with the return nonsense really lost money which is why they now keep lists of people who do this and just ignore their orders that they're losing money on anyway. Notice how many SF kids complain about not getting something or waiting months? That's the reason.They don't want you as customers because you lose them money with your stupid peasant behaviour. When I order something from BB I get it in 2 days using regular UPS. The same stuff that SF kids complain about not receiving or waiting a year for lol8%5B1%5D.gif Yep, slow learners who don't get the message-go to Bananarama Republic or Walmart   kido.lol8%5B1%5D.gif

The other side of it is, if I can't return something to a store simply because I don't like it, I may just decide not to shop there at all. I'm not talking about returning already worn and obviously used merchandise, but items still in new condition with tags/packaging/etc.  I recently returned 2 different ties because I didn't like the way they looked when I got them home and tried to figure out what to wear them with. If they don't take back a tie with tags still on, I will stop shopping there.

Do you actually believe the policy is such that you can't return a tie with tags on within some reasonable period?

People, I know facts always get in the way of a good debate, but let's go ahead and quote from the Brooks Brothers website anyway:
